Will Qwest Get More Customers?

by Thomas Beutel

With Qwest as the lone holdout in the NSA records sweep, I’m curious to know if their stance will lead to more customers. I certainly looked them up and was disappointed to see that they do not have services in California (other than phone cards and such). I would consider switching from AT&T if I had the chance.A quick look at their stock price [google.com] seems to indicate that they did not get a bump from investors, but that may have more to do with the overall down market. Let’s see what happens in the coming weeks and months.
